2024 Suwannee River PeaceMaker Paddle September 19-21

	2024 Suwannee River PeaceMaker Paddle September 19-21

Raised: $18,333.78 Goal: $89,500.00

This Adventure Fundraising event is a three day, two night Adventure on the historic and beautiful Swannee River near Live Oak, Florida. We stay in comfort at the Village Lodge in the Advent Christian Village in Dowling Park each night and eat our meals together while building new friendships.

The mission of this PeaceMaker Paddle is to raise funds to create StirringWaters, an intentionally and fully inclusive aquatic experience for people and families living with disabilities.

This is our main fundraising event for StirringWaters scheduled for 2024, so it is important that each fundraiser/paddler do their very best to exceed their goal. Because we only have a limited number of rooms available, we can only guarantee rooms to those who raise the minimum goal of $5000.

Here are some suggestions for raising your goal:

  • Get a network behind your effort -- church, school, work, neighborhood, etc.
  • Do a mini fundraising event to raise support
  • Have a PeaceMaker Party and use it to ask people to help you raise your goal
  • Include a standard ask with your signature in each email
  • Find corporate sponsors that want to promote their business with recognition

Our base camp is in the Village Lodge with real beds, indoor bath, and AC. They will also furnish the meals.  Here is our anticipated schedule:

  • 9/19 -- Check in at the Village Lodge in time for dinner at 6:30 p.m. followed by orientation
  • 9/20 -- A Paddle Day. Breakfast at the Lodge, Lunch along the River, Dinner back at the Lodge
  • 9/21 -- A Paddle half day.  Breakfast at the Lodge, end by noon -- Head home
  • 9/21 -- The INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

We can accommodate couples who want to work together in raising funds with a minimum goal of $10,000.  Becasue our canoes are very large, paddlers with certain disabilities may be able to participate.

The housing and meal cost is $150 a person or $250 a couple, in addition to the funds you raise for StirringWaters.
